Fifteenth Infantry
WISCONSIN
(3-YEARS)

Fifteenth Infantry. -- Cols., Hans C. Heg, Ole C. Johnson Lieut.Cols., Kiler K. Tones, David McKee, Ole C. Johnson; Majs. Charles M. Reese, Ole C. Johnson, George Wilson.

Lieut.-Col. Jones' commission was revoked, March 1, 1862, and David McKee was given the commission as his successor. This was a Scandinavian regiment and was organized at Camp Randall, Madison, in Dec. 1861, and Jan., 1862.

It was mustered in Feb. 14, 1862, and left the state March 2, being ordered to Bird's point, Mo. Six companies were sent to take part in the siege of Island No. 10, and at the surrender the entire regiment was used in garrisoning and strengthening the fortifications.

Cos. G and I were left as a permanent garrison and the remaining eight companies were sent to Kentucky and thence to Mississippi. They joined the Army of the Cumberland and were sent to Nashville then returned to Kentucky and participated in the battle of Perryville being exposed to a heavy fire, but not losing a man.

The regiment was sent in pursuit of Morgan's guerrillas and returned with 50 prisoners and many horses and wagons, having destroyed guerrilla premises, a distillery, whisky and grain for which it received Gen. Rosecrans' compliments. The regiment was in a sharp fight at Nolensville pike in December losing 75 killed and wounded, and on the 30th and 31st was in the advance towards Murfreesboro.

This brought it into action at Stone's River, where it made a name for itself for endurance and courage, losing in two days 119 in killed, wounded and missing. In the battle of Chickamauga it was engaged in a terrific contest with the enemy's main line, being hurried into line on the double-quick to fill a gap, its accompanying regiment leaving it unsupported. An Illinois regiment was sent forward, but soon fell back, and believing the 15th to have done likewise opened fire, bringing the 15th under fire from friends and foes and compelling it to break lines and escape as best it could.

The next day it was ordered into a gap and twice repulsed the enemy, but being left without support and nearly surrounded, it was again compelled to break ranks and retire. It lost in the two days 101, leaving but 75 men on duty.

At Missionary Ridge the regiment was the first to occupy Orchard Knob. It was in the advance at Buzzard Roost and Rocky Face Ridge; in the engagement at Resaca, charging the first line of the enemy's intrenchments; was in the engagements about Dallas, losing 83 in killed, wounded and prisoners, in the assault on Kennesaw Mountain, was in reserve at Peachtree creek, and was engaged in the battle of Jonesboro.

The regiment then performed provost and guard duty until mustered out. Cos. A, B. C and E were mustered out in Dec. 1864, and the others in Jan. and Feb. 1865, at Chattanooga.

The recruits and reenlisted veterans were transferred to the 24th Wis. infantry and later to the 13th. The original strength of the regiment was 801. Gain by recruits, 97; substitutes, 1; veteran reenlistments, 7; total, 906. Losses by death, 267; missing, 23; desertion, 46; transfer, 47; discharge, 204; mustered out, 320.

Chickamagua after battle report:

Report of Capt. Mons Grinager, Fifteenth Wisconsin Infantry.

HDQRS. FIFTEENTH REGT. WISCONSIN VOLS., Chattanooga, Ten., September 29, 1863.

SIR: I have the honor herewith to transmit the following report of the part taken by the Fifteenth Wisconsin Volunteers in the battle of Chickamauga Creek, Ga., on the 19th and 20th instant:

About 1 p. m. on the 19th we were ordered into line of battle on the south side of the Chattanooga road, 3 miles east of Crawfish Spring, our left resting on the Eighth Kansas Volunteers. We marched by the right flank through some heavy underbrush till our right rested on a corn-field about three-quarters of a mile from the road. We then advanced in line of battle over a slight elevation of ground, and on ascending the top the enemy's skirmishers opened fire on us, but with little effect. We drove them in. After advancing a short distance farther, we received a heavy volley from the enemy's line immediately in our front.

The engagement now became general. We held our position for some minutes, and had fired about 6 or 7 rounds, when we were ordered back 10 or 15 paces, on account of being exposed to a heavy cross-fire from infantry on our right and a rebel battery on our left.

This position we held for some time, and had fired about 10 or 12 rounds, when we were ordered to fix bayonets and charge the line immediately in our front. The order was complied with; but our right being so hard pressed, they could make but little headway, having no support to the right, and the Eighth Kansas to the left had partly broken and were a short distance in our rear, being thus exposed to a raking cross-fire. We then received orders to fall back, which was done slowly and in good order, holding the enemy in check until we were relieved by the Second Brigade, Gen. Carlin's, which advanced and engaged the enemy. We reformed in rear of the Second Brigade, which soon was forced back behind us, and we again fired some rounds, but were met with such overwhelming force that we were forced to fall back across an open field immediately in our rear. On our arrival at the edge of the timber, on the north side of the field, the Third Brigade of Sheridan's division advanced on our right and engaged the enemy. We twice tried to recross the field, and succeeded the second time in getting as far as to the log-house on the south side of the field, where we retook a few pieces of artillery, and which position we held until fresh troops arrived.

We then were ordered about three-quarters of a mile to the rear, where we reformed with the division, and bivouacked until 3 o'clock the next morning.

Our loss the 19th in killed, wounded, and missing was: Commissioned officers, 7; enlisted men, 59.

Among our killed was Capt. John M. Johnson, Company A. Among our wounded, Col. Jans C. Heg, commanding brigade, since dead. Capt. Hans Hansen, Company C, severely wounded and left on the field; Maj. George Wilson and Capt. A. Gasman, severely; Lieut. C. E. Tanberg, Company D, slightly wounded, and Capt. Henry Hauff missing.

At 3 a. m. on the 20th we were ordered a short distance to the left, and took up our position on a hill on the north side of the Chattanooga road, where we were held as reserve until about 11 a. m., when the battle was renewed, and we were ordered to the front. We formed line of battle on the south of the road, and advanced through an orchard and a parcel of timber. After having changed positions several times, took up our final position behind some hastily constructed barricades, our left resting on the Eighth Kansas Volunteers and right on the Twenty-fifth Illinois. We were not fully into our position when the enemy advanced on us from the timber on the opposite side of the field in our front; when they got in short range, we fired and drove the first line back, but they soon advanced again with overwhelming numbers. We held our position until we were outflanked on the left, exposed to a raking cross-fire and almost surrounded, when we got orders to fall back. We then made a hasty retreat to the hill on the north side of the Chattanooga road, in which the battalion soon became scattered. At about 4 p. m. the brigade was sent to the rear.

Our loss on the 20th was:

Commissioned officers........................ 3
Enlisted men...................................... 32
Our loss on the 19th......................... 66
Total*.............................................. 101

Among our loss on the 20th was Lieut. Col. Ole C. Johnson, commanding regiment; Capt. C. Gustaveson, company F, and Lieut. O. Thompson, Company A, missing.

I had not the honor to command the regiment during the battle, as our lieutenant-colonel, Johnson, was not missing until we fell back from our last position on the 20th, but I observed that both officers and men behaved bravely during the battle, and it is but justice to mention the following officers, who showed more than ordinary courage and bravery during the battle: Lieut. Col. Ole C. Johnson, Maj. George Wilson, Adjt. L. G. Nelson, Capt. John M. Johnson, Company A, Capt. H. Hansen, Company C; Lieut. Simson, Company F, Lieut. Clement, Company K, and Lieut. Brown, Company H.

I have the honor to be, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

MONS GRINAGER,
Capt., Comdg. 15th Regt. Wisconsin Infty. Vols.

Report of Capt. John A. Gordon, Fifteenth Wisconsin Infantry.

HDQRS. FIFTEENTH WISCONSIN INFANTRY, Chattanooga, Tennessee, November 27, 1863.

CAPT.: I have the honor to report that my regiment, Fifteenth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, consisting of 13 men, moved out of camp on the afternoon of November 23, and formed a part of the second line of our brigade, then forming in front of Ford Wood; moved with the brigade to where it took the first line of the enemy's rifle-pits; remained there all night, sleeping on our arms.

On the morning of the 24th, moved to the left of the front line, and relived the Thirty-fifth Illinois Infantry, and on the line that so gallantly drove the enemy to their last line of works at the base of the mountain. About 1 p.m. we in turn were relieved by Thirty-fifth Illinois Infantry, and took a position assigned us as reserve, in the rear of the Sixty-eight Indiana and Eighth Kansas Volunteer Infantry; moved in this position, with the brigade, to the top of Missionary Ridge.

Our casualties were nominal, having only 6 men slightly wounded. It would be invidious for me to particularize where all tried to do their duty.

I am, captain, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JOHN A. GORDON,
Capt., Comdg. Fifteenth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry.

Report of Lieut. Col. Ole C. Johnson, Fifteenth Wisconsin Infantry.

HDQRS. FIFTEENTH WISCONSIN VOLUNTEERS, Near Atlanta, Ga., September 15, 1864.

SIR: I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of the Fifteenth Wisconsin Volunteers in the late campaign, commencing at McDonald's Station, Tenn., the 3d day of May last, and ending with the occupation of Atlanta:

At 12 m. on the 3d of May the regiment, under command of Maj. Wilson, moved with the brigade on the road leading through Catoosa Springs to Tunnel Hill, which point we reached on the 7th at 12 m. The Fifteenth Wisconsin being deployed as skirmishers, advanced to the foot of Rocky Face Ridge, where it remained during the night. On the morning of the 8th the regiment was ordered tv advance and take the ridge, if possible. At 8 a. m. four companies being deployed as skirmishers our right, connecting with the skirmishers of Gen. Hazen's brigade, advanced under a heavy fire from the enemy strongly posted on the crest of the ridge. After a severe skirmish our left succeeded in carrying the crest, where we took up a strong position, which we held until relieved, under proper orders, by troops from Gen. Harker's brigade. Finding it impossible to carry the ridge in front of our right by assault, the troops on this part of the line remained in position on the northern slope of the ridge, constantly skirmishing with the enemy until the afternoon of the 12th, when we moved with the brigade to the left about one and a half miles to meet a reported movement of the enemy in force in that direction. A.t 6 p. m. we relieved a part of the Thirty-second Indiana and Eighty-ninth Illinois regiments on the skirmish line, where we remained during the night, and on the morning of the 18th found the enemy had evacuated his position in and about Rocky Face Ridge and Dalton. Our loss up to this time was as follows: Killed, 1, wounded, 1. The regiment moved immediately with the brigade in pursuit of the enemy, passing through Dalton about 11 a. m., thence south on the left and on a line with the railroad. On the 14th at 12 m. heavy firing was heard in front; the brigade was formed in three linea, this regiment in the left of the third line, and moved forward about 600 yards over broken country and found the enemy strongly intrenched around Resaca. About 4 p. m. our regiment and the Thirty-fifth Illinois were ordered to relieve a portion of Col. Sherman's brigade, of Gen. Newton's division, about 200 yards.to the right. This position was greatly exposed to an enfilading fire from the enemy's artillery, and would have been untenable had we not been partly covered by the first line of the enemy's works, which had been previously carried by the Twenty-third Corps. Here the regiment was engaged about two hours, when our ammunition was exhausted, and, being relieved by a regiment from Col. Sherman's brigade, we moved back about 800 yards, where we rested over night. A.t 6 a. m. on the 15th the regiment relieved the Forty-ninth Ohio on the front line. Hastily constructed barricades having been constructed during the night, we were partly covered from the fire, and from this position we kept a battery of two guns in our immediate front completely silent. We commanded the enemy's works with our musketry, so he could not show his head above the parapets. At 6 p. m. we were relieved by the Fifteenth Ohio, and formed in double column in the second line. At 11 p. m. the enemy made a desperate charge on our line, but was handsomely repulsed and severely punished. On the morning of the 16th the enemy had disappeared from our front, and our skirmishers entered his main line of works, when it was found that he had crossed the Oostenaula River at Resaca Station, and burned the railroad bridge behind him. Our casualties here were as follows, viz: Killed, 4; wounded, 14. About 2 p. m. we crossed the Oostenaula River on the wagon bridge. Moving in a southerly direction, in line with the railroad, we passed through Calhoun toward Adairsville. On the afternoon of the 17th Gen. Newton's division met the enemy in considerable force near Adairsville. We were formed on the right of Gen. Hazen's brigade and threw up breastworks on the crest of a ridge. Our regiment was deployed as skirmishers about 200 yards in front in which position we remained during the night. On the morning of the 18th, the enemy having retreated, we moved in a southerly direction, passing through Adairsville and Kingston on the 19th to within one mile of Cassville, where the enemy was met in force. The Fifteenth was formed in the third line as support where the line.might be pressed, but did not become engaged. On the morning of the 20th we found that the enemy had evacuated his position. On the Md at 12 m. the regiment, together with the brigade, moved to the right, taking twenty days' rations in the supply train, to Rank the left of the enemy's line at Allatoona Pass. We crossed the Etowah River on a wagon bridge about six miles southwest of Cassville, thence marching in a southerly direction through broken country, crossing Pumpkin Pine Creek. About 4 p. m. the 25th we heard heavy firing in front, which we found was caused by the enemy having hastily left his position in the Allatoona Mountain and hurriedly thrown himself onto the advance of Gen. Hooker's (Twentieth) corps, which was the leading column on this road. Our corps was immediately hurried forward to its support. After crossing Pumpkin Vine Creek the road was somewhat blockaded by troops of the Twentieth Corps, and a rain setting in at night-fall, we bivouacked for the night about 9 p. m. on the left of the road. At 4 a. m. the 26th the brigade was put in position on the left of Gen. Newton's division, fronting east. The Fifteenth, on the right of the Thirty-fifth Illinois, in the second line, moved forward with the brigade to within 200 yards of the enemy's works. The Thirty-second Indiana was deployed as skirmishers and drove the enemy handsomely, and in this position thus secured we intrenched ourselves on a ridge, where three batteries were immediately planted. Our regiment relieved the Thirty-second Indiana on the skirmish line at 6 p. m., where it remained during the night.

At 9 a. m. the morning of the 27th the brigade was relieved by a portion of Gen. Stanley's division and moved about one mile to the left, passing by Pickett's Mills, where the brigade was formed in rear of and supporting Gen. Hazen's brigade in two lines of battle, the Fifteenth forming in the center of the Erst line, connecting on the right with the Eighty-ninth Illinois and on the left with the Thirty-second Indiana. Our division, having been selected to develop the enemy on the left, moved by the left flank about three miles, passing in the rear of the Twenty-third Corps, which was on the left of our previous position. About 9 p. m. we arrived at a point which we supposed to be the right Bank of the enemy's lines. About 4 p. m. Gen. Hazen's brigade being repulsed, the front line of this brigade was ordered forward, closely followed by the Second. Our regiment in crossing a ravine was enfiladed by one of the enemy's batteries. Charging with a yell over the Second Brigade, the regiment went so near to the enemy's breast-works that some of our men were killed within ten feet of them. Finding it impossible to dislodge the enemy, the regiment lay down about fifteen yards from their works, keeping up an effective musketry fire. Companies A and F firing right oblique at a battery tho, it was in position about sixty yards to the right, so as to enfilade our line of battle. The firing from the enemy's musketry and artillery was very heavy, but we held our position until about 9 p. m., when we were ordered to fall back. In attempting to carry ok our wounded the enemy charged on us and captured many of our men, including most of the wounded. A.bout 11 p. m. the regiment was put in position some 300 yards to the right, on a ridge, and 200 yards from the enemy's works, where we fortified strongly. In this position we remained, constantly skirmishing with the enemy until he evacuated his position on the night of June 5. The regiment the next morning at 8 o'clock moved to New Hope Church, where it was put into position fronting south, the left connecting with the Twenty-fifth Illinois, on the first line. Our casualties at this battle were as follows, viz: Commissioned officers --wounded, 1; missing, 2. Enlisted men--killed, 14; wounded, 40; missing, 96. At 9 a. m. June 6 we moved in a southerly direction to within one mile of Pine Mountain, where we bivouacked for the might.

On the morning of the 7th we moved about 600 yards to the front and left and were put into position 800 yards from the enemy's works on Pine Knob, our right connecting with Gen. Harker's brigade and the left with the Fourteenth Corps, fronting nearly south. On the morning of the 14th our line advanced about 200 yards to the left and front, where we formed on a ridge, our right connecting with the Thirty-fifth Illinois and our left with the Forty-ninth Ohio. In this position we intrenched ourselves within 200 yards of the enemy's works on the eastern slope of Pine Mountain. On the morning of the 15th the enemy had disappeared from our front.

We advanced at 9 a. m. to the abandoned works and formed in double column on the left of the second line, stacked arms, and rested until Gen.'s Stanley's and Newton's divisions formed and advanced about one mile, when the enemy was found in a second line of works. Our division being in reserve, moved inside of the abandoned works and bivouacked for the night. At 7 a. m. the 17th we marched through the second line of works, the enemy having retreated during the night, and relieved Gen. Stanley's division, which was skirmishing with him. This brigade being formed in two lines, connecting on the right with Col. Knefler's brigade, and on the left with the Fourteenth Corps, advanced with the Eighty-ninth Illinois deployed as skirmishers, driving the enemy from their riflepits into their main line of works, a distance of one mile. From this position five batteries shelled the enemy in the direction of Kenesaw Mountain. On the 18th at 6 a. m. our regiment was put into position about 800 yards from the enemy's works, and hastily constructed barricades. At 8 a. m. we relieved the Twenty-fifth Illinois on the skirmish line, which was so near the enemy that we fired into his main line of works, and received in return a heavy fire from his whole line of battle. Being relieved at 9 p. m. by the Fifteenth Ohio, we fell back to the main line of works, where we remained until the enemy evacuated his third line in front of Kenesaw Mountain on the night of the 19th. Passing through the third line of the enemy's works at 10 a. m. the 20th, this division relieved a division of the Twentieth Corps, about one and a half miles to the right of Kenesaw Mountain and 500 yards from the enemy's fourth line of works. About 150 yards in the immediate front of this brigade lay Bald Knob, where the enemy was strongly posted behind rifle-pits. On the 21st the brigade was ordered to charge and dislodge the enemy from his position on the knob. At 12 m. the Fifteenth Ohio, deployed as skirmishers, and the Forty-fifth [Forty-ninth] Ohio supporting, charged, and drove the enemy from his position, capturing many prisoners. Our regiment was immediately ordered to relieve the Fifteenth Ohio on the skirmish line, which was effected under a heavy fire from the enemy. We immediately intrenched ourselves on this knob, which we held until the night of the 2d of July, when we moved together with the brigade at 9 a. m., about one mile to the left, and relieved Gen. Woods' brigade, of the Fifteenth Corps. Our regiment formed on the left of the brigade, in single line, occupying strong works built by the troops whom we relieved, a, bout 200 yards from the enemy's works on Kenesaw Mountain. On the morning of the 3d we found that the enemy had evacuated his position on and about Kenesaw Mountain, and retreated toward the Chattahoochee River. Our casualties were at this place, enlisted men, killed, 4; wounded. 8.

On the 3d, at 8 a. m., we moved with the brigade, passing through the enemy's works, about two miles southwest of Kenesaw Mountain, thence in a southeasterly direction past the Military Academy at Marietta, and crossing the railroad one mile south of Marietta, marching on the left on a line with the railroad about six miles, where Gen. Stanley's division found the enemy in force. At 1 p. m. on the 4th we moved one mile to the left, where the brigade was put into position on the extreme left of the army, our regiment fronting nearly east. On the 5th the enemy had again disappeared from our front, and we marched at 8 a. m., passing through the enemy's works, thence to the right till we reached the railroad, on which we marched to Vining's Station, where Gen. Hazen's brigade discovered the rear guard of the enemy across the Chattahoochee River at Pace's Ferry. Our regiment was put in position 200 yards to the left of the road leading to Pace s Ferry, on a ridge about 200 yards from the river, our right joining the Thirty-fifth and our left on the Twenty-fifth Illinois. We remained in this position until the 10th, when we moved. about seven miles up the river and bivouacked for the night. At ''? a. m. on the 12th we moved two miles down the river, where a pontoon bridge was constructed, on which we crossed at 1 p. m. On the 18th the division went down the river to Pace's Ferry and drove the enemy from that place to enable the Fourteenth Corps to cross. When Gen. Davis' division had crossed, we were relieved and went back to our former position. On the morning of July 18 the regiment marched on a road leading through Buck Head to Atlanta. On the 19th we went on a reconnaissance and found the enemy strongly intrenched on the south bank of Peach Tree Creek. Col. Knefler's brigade succeeded in driving the enemy from his first line of works on the right of the road, and the Twenty-fifth Illinois being deployed as skirmishers, crossed the creek simultaneously and occupied the works pa {on} the left. The brigade followed the skirmishers, crossing the creek on a hastily constructed foot bridge. At dark we were relieved by Gen. Newton's division, when we marched back to our position of the previous night and rested until morning. At 7 a. m: we marched about two and a half miles when we were put into position on the left of Gen. Newton's division on the north side of Peach Tree Creek, in single line, our right connecting with the Fifteenth Ohio, and our left with the Eighty-ninth Illinois. On the morning of the 21st the enemy had again disappeared, and we marched southwest, on a by-road passing through the first line of works in front of Atlanta, leading to the main Atlanta road. About one mile from the first line the enemy was again found in force. We were put into position within 200 yards of his line, where we put up works, two companies being deployed as skirmishers. On the morning of the 22d we found that the enemy had again evacuated his position, and we moved into the abandoned works and expected to enter the city without further opposition. But the enemy was found strongly posted behind heavy forts and breast-works around Atlanta, and our regiment being put into position within musket-range of the city, fortified and kept up a heavy Ore from the skirmish line.

Up to this time the regiment was under command of Maj. Wilson, but he is now absent sick, and consequently unable to make his report, and I am indebted for the foregoing to Adjt. L. G. Nelson, of this regiment. I returned and took command on the 24th day of July, and from that time no movement was made till the evening of August 25, when, in accordance with previous orders, we moved out quietly with the rest of the brigade, and marched about four miles. The regiment marched with the brigade around and to the rear of Atlanta to Jonesborough, thence to Lovejoy's Station, where we lost 1 man wounded, and back to Atlanta, and went into camp four miles and a half southeast of the city, September 9.

Casualties* not before reported: Commissioned officers, wounded, 1. Enlisted men, killed, 1; wounded, 7.

I have the honor to be, very respectfully,

O. C. JOHNSON,
